As we approach the end of the year and reflect back on this year, we like to start by thanking you for being part of our EARTHwise Community. Whilst this year has seen a worsening of our climate crisis and societal divisions, it has also become evident that people around the world are coming together in shared solidarity for our collective and planetary wellbeing. EARTHwise Centre was created many years ago, precisely for this reason - to provide collective leadership, wisdom, inspiration, and guidance for this important transition time. Here are some of the highlights of this year for us at EARTHwise Centre and inspiration for consciously entering into our next decade.
Scientific Support for our EARTHwise Programs & Methodology
Our EARTHwise Founder & CEO, Dr Anneloes Smitsman, successfully completed her PhD research at the International Centre for Integrated assessment and Sustainable development (ICIS), Maastricht University, the Netherlands. She received her Degree of Doctor on December 18th, after the defence of her dissertation “Into the Heart of Systems Change”, which features many of the EARTHwise training programs and systemic transformational change strategies that have been developed by Anneloes for this specific transition time.
Congratulations Anneloes and thank you for all your tireless work and devoted contribution to the planet and humanity at this time.
The Tipping Point System - Festivals, Music Concerts, and Projects
Mid-2019, EARTHwise Centre became the project host for the further development of the Tipping Point Festivals, which was initiated earlier by Stop-Reset-Go under the leadership of Michael Haupt, Gien Wong, and Tom Harper. Anneloes joined their initiative earlier this year, and started to develop the larger thrivability architecture for a Tipping Point System, based on her PhD research, and invited our Indigenous Partners to come on-board to ensure that the TP foundations are also based on Indigenous Wisdom and Practice. The Tipping Point System (TPS) was born, and over the last few months a strong Partnership Alliance has been growing. We have developed a comprehensive 50-page business plan and are now seeking funding to further develop and implement the various Tipping Point Initiatives and Activities.

Three New EARTHwise Courses
This year has been fertile and productive for us at EARTHwise with the creation of three new online Courses: the live 5 Future Archetypes on-line course with Dr. Anneloes Smitsman, The Making of the Knight’s Shield with Dr. Kurt Barnes, and The Essence Effect with Justine Page.
We are delighted to share that if you missed the live participation for those online programs, including The Leadership Quest, you can now join these courses as self-paced and still receive the Evergreen status so you may participate in the next live course offerings that are always new and unique with each live session. See the details below in “OUR UPCOMING EVENTS & PROGRAMS”.
Our EARTHwise Membership online Program
Our EARTHwise Membership continues to expand. We have enjoyed being together for the rich monthly Masterclasses with Anneloes Smitsman, Kurt Barnes, Alexander Laszlo, Justine Page and Meredith Lowry, as well as the generative conversations and practical skill development through our monthly Evolutionary Learning Circles. At the close of the 5 Future Archetypes course Anneloes invited participants to join the EARTHwise Membership Community as a way to continue the development of our future-creative skills through the Future Archetypes via the monthly Masterclass teachings and monthly Evolutionary Learning Circle.

For thousands of years people gathered during this time in the year to strengthen their community through storytelling, reflection, and the sharing of visions, dreams, and hopes. As we come to the end of 2019 and are soon starting a new decade 2020-2030, the following questions may support us to enter this new cycle more consciously:
Free Videos and Meditation Gifts for Inspiration
During this time of reflection, we are also exploring how we can best serve our conscious evolutionary growth and development for the New Year. We deeply value your feedback and inputs as part of this reflection. If there are specific programs you would like to see offered through EARTHwise or if there are particular events, initiatives or sessions you like to see more off, please get in touch with Nicola about this via - [email protected].
To join our Evergreen self-paced courses:
Our Next Membership Masterclass & Evolutionary Learning Circle
The next online Masterclass takes place on January the 2nd and will be facilitated by Anneloes Smitsman to reflect on the inner consciousness states of thrivability to start 2020 consciously and with wisdom.
The January Evolutionary Learning Circle will take place on January 16th and will be facilitated by Meredith Lowry and Nicola Hoffman, to support implementation and practice of the Masterclass topic. If you would like to join the Masterclass and Evolutionary Learning online sessions please join our Membership program by CLICKING HERE.
